Heck, if "they" have any money, they would do it too, but at work and while getting paid.

I have heard that some megacorps have blocked financial web sites with their firewalls. Then, their employees would use smartphones to check, even to trade!

I try to avoid the mental anguish of worrying about declines from high water marks.

At this moment the SP500 (SPY etf) is at 139.45. That works out to roughly a gain of +13.5% over 12 months. Something to celebrate about.

I guess I should take consolation in the fact that I am still up almost 10% YTD, despite sitting on 25% cash. The "Scrooge" in me is still mad, however.

"Greed is good... Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind... " - Gordon Gekko.

PS. Uh oh! It might not be 10% after today's close!

Yep! Looks like a loss of another 3 months of living expenses today, by the time everything is in.

Are we having fun yet? And I did not even get to hear a joyful Wh***!
